MRKH Conference for Teens and Their Families
Please check back soon for the schedule of the 2019 MRKH Conference.
This annual conference is an opportunity for young women ages 14-25 who have been diagnosed with MRKH, and their families to come together for education and support. Our past conferences have been successful — thanks to all of our attendees and speakers! We welcome your suggestions for our upcoming 2019 conference!
We are hoping to have a live webcast of the conference available for individuals who are unable to attend the conference in person. If you would be interested in watching a live webcast, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
For more information, please contact Phaedra Thomas, RN, BSN at 617-355-7712 or via email: email@example.com.
